King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

Gaining a reputation as one of the country's most exciting live acts, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have played a range of shows such as opening Meredith Music Festival, winning a spot at Melbourne's Big Day Out and supporting Girl Talk. The boys now they bring their surf-psych-punk sounds to Cherryfest.

I Exist

With a mixture of hardcore, stoner and doom influences, I Exist have been compared to bands such as Cherryfest's headliner Eyehategod. Little more than a year after their first ever live show, the band released their 2010 debut album I Turn For The Worse, before their follow up LP The Broken Passage, released barely a year after the first. I Exist are favourites with office.
